ABC Warriors Project No 2

The second in my ABC Warrior project and it is our favourite foul mouthed, disobedient, sewage droid, Ro-Jaws. Ro-Jaws originally starred alongside Hammerstein in the fantastic comic Ro-Busters and then found his way into the pages of Nemesis before ending up attached to the ABC Warriors. He was briefly one of the warriors before being replaced by Terri (I spelled her name right this time) near the beginning of The Black Hole story. He stayed with the Warriors through to the end of Khronicles of Khaos when the Warriors disbanded and he joined Deadlock at the Kollege of Khaos. He has reappeared in the strip in more of a guest capacity since. Nevertheless, for me he is an essential part of the ABC Warriors. The Black Hole and Khronicles of Khaos are pretty much the high point of the comic for me. Not to say it's ever gotten bad, just never that good again. It is certainly a period of Pat Mills writing (which may owe a lot to his writing partnership with Tony Skinner at the time) that I remember fondly and sorely missed.

This actual image for Ro-Jaws was simple to come up with. Certainly one of the easiest. After all there is not a great deal that can be done with sharp-toothed dustbin on wheels. I figured I just have him waving as he has always been a friendly and likeable character.
